Celebrity Series will launch a new artistic initiative in the 2018-2019 season with performances at New England Conservatory’s Plimpton Shattuck Black Box Theatre, an intimate, flexible space in the Student Life & Performance Center at 255 St. Botolph Street, just around the corner from Jordan Hall. This first season’s programming will emphasize dance and, in particular, younger, groundbreaking choreographers and dance ensembles in their Boston debuts.
NEC’s Plimpton Shattuck Black Box Theatre will give audiences the experience of contemporary dance in an intimate, 250-seat theater, providing a rare opportunity to witness up close the work of choreographers and dancers, and to see new dance vocabulary not usually seen in Boston.
Celebrity Series is proud to deepen its ongoing partnership with the New England Conservatory to include this new performance space and to continue our long-standing tradition of bringing debut performances and new works to Boston, all performed to live music.
All performers are Boston Debuts. All works are Boston premieres.
